Nice deck, Killian is super fun.

Spirit Link/Vampiric Link would be awesome in here, since they stack with Lifelink. I think I would first take Battle Mastery since it also doubles life gain (if on a Lifelink creature), and also doubles damage dealt.

Holy Mantle is another source of protection from creatures that I think would be good here.

Gift of Doom is a little expensive mana wise, but turn 2 commander -> turn 3 Gift of Doom is possible and pretty great.

Kaya's Ghostform is another "extra life" aura that's really good.

Light of Promise could get really out of hand really fast, basically reads "double your commander's power every turn". Sunbond is another card that does the same thing.

As far as what I'd replace anything with: Grisly Transformation, Spirited Companion, Transcendent Envoy all seem like reasonable cuts. Reasoning being: You can add better evasion than Intimidate (grisly transformation) with Holy Mantle. There's (almost) never a bad time to put Kaya's Ghostform on Killian, and there are quite a few situations where Spirited Companion is simply a 2 mana draw a card spell. All your auras are so cheap with your commander that another cost reduction from Transcendent Envoy feels... a little unnecessary, TBH. That of course, depends on how much your commander gets targeted, but if you use more protection auras like Flickering Ward or Gift of Doom, I think it can make up for that.

Hope that helps, or gives you some ideas!

Blessing of Leeches maybe? Daybreak Coronet? Spirit Loop to double your life gain.

Virtus the Veiled could be a secondary target for all those enchantments, especially the evasion cards.

Benevolent Blessing could replace Pentarch Ward. That Flash is as good as a counterspell sometimes.

I'd take out Angelic Gift (drawing a card is nice but you NEED to draw a card to make it equivalent to almost any other enchantment you're running). Same with Grisly Transformation.

There has got to be better card draw than Tome of Legends.

Hey! I think that you should use more Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield (e.g. Angelic Gift for flying, Grisly Transformation for evasion to non-Orzhov creatures, Sage's Reverie ). A card like Chosen by Heliod probably work better than Holy Strength , for example.

A card like Skeletal Scrying may help you drawing cards. You can use Auras destroyed by the first time Killian is removed to fuel it.

What do you think about Hateful Eidolon ? It can be a voltron beater and help you draw cards if Killian is destroyed. Scarab of the Unseen can also help you recovering Auras from a creature that is about to be destroyed. This with Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield may be a good card advantage play.

Maybe a boardwipe or two can help you in some situations.

For intimidate there is Nim Deathmantle, Gruesome Deformity, Grisly Transformation, and Executioner's Hood

For fear there is Cover of Darkness, Dirge of Dread, Intimidation, Ebony Charm, Profane Command, Sleeper's Guile.

There's also Odric, Lunarch Marshal who copies keywords, Odric, Master Tactician who allows you to declare no blockers, Akroma's Memorial which has flying and pro two colours, a kind of evasion.
